HIGHLAND VILLAGE (CBSDFW.COM) – The Town of Flower Mound is about to have a new assistant fire chief while the City of Highland Village is now looking for a new fire chief.

After four years of service, Fire Chief John Glover has announced his resignation effective July 15, according to a news release from the City of Highland Village.

Glover has accepted a position as Assistant Fire Chief over EMS with the Town of Flower Mound Fire Department.

The City says during his time in Highland Village, Chief Glover “improved the heart and health safety services and programs provided to residents, enhanced emergency response and planning city-wide and implemented public education campaigns focusing on health and safety and fire prevention.”

“When Chief Glover began here four years ago I identified the need to improve and develop the department in all areas and capabilities for both fire and an emphasis in providing the best EMS in North Texas. Chief Glover has met and exceeded my expectations by all accounts. I thank Chief Glover for his service, professionalism, and dedication to the men and women of the Highland Village Fire Department. It it’s been an honor to have him as our Chief,” stated City Manager Michael Leavitt.

In spring 2016, the results of a Fire Department Task Force analysis of the department response times showed the Highland Village Fire Department exceeding the National Fire Protection Association 1710 Standard 96 percent of the time.
